Spring Sunday and Mango Shake

Spring is here or at least it seems like it has finally decided to make it to this part of the world.

This time of the year in India is the beginning of mango season and we can see a few mangos here and there in New York City that seems okay to be eaten. Even though nothing will beat Indian mangos…

I was in India last June in the deep heart of mango season and our entire menu was revolving around mangos: mango shake for breakfast, mangos for lunch, again mango shake to go through the afternoon. Yes life was hard…

Face timing on Sunday morning with my in-laws in India, we know that they have already started the mango shake diet to kick off the season.

We had just bought a mango and I was still wondering how I would eat/prepare/cook it. Obviously I had to try my first home-made mango shake. Just to make us feel like we are a little bit in India…

Mango Avocado & Chicken Salad

Here is my first recipe to share with you!

This is a recipe I created by mixing different recipes that I found online.

For 2 people:

– 1 mango (2 if they are smalls)

– 1 avocado

– 1 boneless skinless chicken breast (about 8 pounds)

In a bowl, mix together 2 big spoons of Soy Sauce, 1 lemon juice and ginger. Let it stay in the bowl while you prepare the rest.

Cut the mango & avocado in thin slices or in small cubes, depending on your preference.

Try to have everything in thin slices, it looks more refined if you want to impress your guests!

Cut the chicken breast in small pieces or thin slices and cook it in a pan with some olive oil.

A few minutes are enough, you can make it roasted but make sure it stays tender.

Once the chicken is ready, mix it with the mango and avocado in the bowl with the sauce.

No need to add salt as the soy sauce is already very salted.

To be served right away while it is warm!

My husband was surprised by this dish when he saw me cooking, but then when he started eating, he just loved it!
